The IASA is responsible for managing all IPR, including but not
limited to trademarks, domain names, and copyrights, that belongs
to the IETF. It is responsible for undertaking any and
all required actions on behalf of the IETF to obtain, protect and
manage the rights that the IETF needs to carry out its work.
This makes sense to me, and I agree with Bob that it is important to
make it clear who will control and manage our intellectual property
